A Panel of Evangelical Christian Trump Voters: We’d Believe Donald Trump over Jesus

A lot of people wonder how Trump got elected.

CNN decided to bring a few people in who voted for President Donald Trump to find out, and to ask if their feelings about the president have changed since he too, office. 

The results were interesting, to say the least.  And some might say a little blasphemous.

Trump voter Mark Lee, when asked about Trump’s possible collusion with Russia, responded with this bit of sacrilege: “If Jesus Christ gets down off the cross and told me Trump is with Russia, I would tell him, ‘Hold on a second. I need to check with the president if it’s true.’”

But Mr. Lee’s heresy was just one of several highlights provided by the panel. 

Anchor Alisyn Camerota referred the voters to Representative Jackie Speier’s remarks questioning Trump’s mental stability.  Panelist Jimmy Dozier replied, “He has made millions of dollars. He knows what he’s doing.”

This writer would like to remind readers that there is no positive or negative correlation between millionaires and mental illness.

As Trump supporters are typically inclined to do, Hillary Clinton was brought up negatively several times, in an effort to make Trump look better. 

Her hypothetical handling of North Korea and race relations were both discussed.  Voter Daphne Goggins praised Trump’s handling of North Korea, saying that Trump has to be “tough” with leader Kim Jong-Un, “because he’s dealing with crazies.”

At least one Trump supporter did voice dismay regarding Trump’s use of Twitter.  Panelist Amanda Delekta said that Trump’s use of Twitter was unproductive, and wished it would be used by the administration in a more positive way.
